RSM Canada, the leading global provider of audit, tax and consulting services focused on the middle market, today is delighted to announce it has been recognized among Canada’s Most Admired™ Corporate Cultures for 2020.

Canada’s Most Admired™ Corporate Cultures is founded by Waterstone Human Capital, a leading cultural talent management firm. Now in its 16th year, this national program recognizes best-in-class Canadian organizations for fostering high performance corporate cultures that help sustain a competitive advantage. Organizations that demonstrate a commitment to culture and set examples of how great cultures can ultimately drive growth and performance are recognized as national winners in the categories of growth, mid-market, enterprise, and the broader public sector. RSM Canada has been chosen among firms in the mid-market category.

“RSM Canada’s culture is shaped by the diverse attributes of our staff and partners, and the shifting needs of our client’s in today’s ever-changing business environment,” said Harry Blum, national managing partner at RSM Canada. “We live our core values every day, exemplified by a powerful framework of key behaviours – caring, curious, collaborative, courageous and critical thinking – that underpin our first-choice advisor culture. We build rich and enduring relationships based on deep understanding of our clients, their strategies, challenges and aspirations. When clients are fundamentally understood, they are empowered to move forward with confidence. It’s that firmly rooted culture that inspires our work and also gives us competitive advantage.”

“At Waterstone we believe corporate culture drives performance and that it’s an organization’s greatest asset,” said Marty Parker, president and chief executive officer of Waterstone Human Capital and chair of Canada’s Most Admired™ Corporate Cultures Awards. “This year’s winning organizations have all demonstrated an outstanding commitment to corporate culture and to leveraging their culture as a competitive advantage. They all align to three key themes: they are focused on building a high-performance culture, committed to employee career development and growth, and focused on creating a workplace culture that supports physical and psychological safety for their team members.”

“We are incredibly proud of our team and what we have accomplished, particularly in light of the unprecedented professional and personal challenges the year has brought,” said Rhonda Klosler, chief operating officer and Toronto market leader at RSM Canada. “Now more than ever, our choices and actions, what we say and do, must reflect our purpose and values. We know first-hand the important role culture has within successful businesses and this award is testament to our team’s commitment to living our values.”
